STRATEGIES ON SELECTING THE BEST LOGO DESIGNER

BUDGET

A business logo is an investment in both your time and your money so anytime a design firm offers a money back guarantee try to keep in mind that they can’t refund the time you commit which is eminently more precious than your money is.

PORTFOLIO

Many design firms talk a good game but inevitably a design firm can only be evaluated by the quality of their design work, if the work in their portfolio does not feature actual examples odds are they will not be able to produce a top quality logo design.

VISION

A logo’s objective is to be recognized and remembered, and it’s objective is to reflect your unique vision for your business. If a designer is not focused on actualizing your vision, the thing they are actually focused on is how quickly they can get paid.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LOGO DESIGN

Virtually every new Natchitoches entrepreneur realizes that they require a logo, yet few start-ups thoroughly comprehend the vital role their logo design will make in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo functions better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining impact on the viability of a business, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Natchitoches businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not need consideration, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to store signs a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel exclusive, and they are suitable for the product or organization they brand.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

understand your brand

Brand – It is a verb and a noun, it is an identifying mark and also the process of denoting something so that it can be identified, its foundation originates from the brand branded onto animals. Today a brand indicates practically anything with a motive, regardless of whether it be profit or political parties, a brand is an innate aspect of defining the worth of something in the public’s mind.

Branding – Is sort of like marketing and advertising’s sexy cousin, they are all from the same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing have to do with making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest aimed at a target market, it’s goal is to develop a mental image that the audience will likely connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and nurtured by advertising and marketing and identity design. When somebody mentions the brand names Porsche or Mustang what we consider is their brand image, it’s an image that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a vehicle with 4 wheels that can move us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of freedom, beauty, of something dangerous and exotic . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals want those products. Brand image is why individuals acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can identify with.

Branding Companies – If you reflect on the beginning of most branding agencies you’ll discover that they are quite often rebranded advertising and marketing companies. When somebody claims they are in advertising many people will likely have a preconceived notion about the type of work they do anything that can be seen, touched or heard are part of a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designer
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that focuses on a type of visual design that helps form the image of a company, a product or a business. Brand identity designers produce logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral products such as cards, stationery, and brochures. Some identity designers also build websites and user interfaces. The essential duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and also an emotional tone with the goal of affecting actions, results and assumptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Natchitoches coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an older section of the town and hoped to project a retro feel without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved both jobs via creating a sign design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs created for Natchitoches medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Natchitoches.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Natchitoches travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something similar to this logo by utilizing the positive space in the design to voice one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Natchitoches logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Natchitoches logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however my customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of hurdles, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Natchitoches book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most essential part of a published book considering that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it looks like that in many cases 1 of the traits consumers often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Natchitoches logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an old typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be older cases. For this brand concept I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that appeared like they were from a different generation.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Natchitoches, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs because it appears that every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

I actually love doing dental logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo design produced for a Natchitoches hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which communicated a feeling of relaxation and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a business logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is generally the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Arabian horse logo style produced for a steed cattle ranch that specializes in breeding Arabian program steeds.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

Logo design for a software program designer the design attributes and famous Natchitoches aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

Progress logo style developed for a Natchitochesindoor developer, design function a collection of red circles that converge and replace the letter O in the center of the logo style.

A Natchitoches business logo design featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Natchitoches logo design using an illustration which garners the attention of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this Natchitoches company logo layout has an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo idea wasn’t actually composed for an Natchitoches area farm it was in reality designed for an investments broker, and this creative logo was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was really to create a graphic that projected trust, success, and wealth.

 Natchitoches Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for externally encountering arrow as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what kind of logo design that they preferred, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo design created for the use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script typeface that is evocative a renowned Natchitoches sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have created loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked closely with the owner to create a business logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
